[Warminster, PA] — Planned Parenthood Keystone is proud to announce the launch of a new telehealth program in Pennsylvania which allows patients to access high-quality, affordable health care services by phone and/or through a private and secure video conferencing platform that connects them with Planned Parenthood Keystone’s trusted providers.
“Planned Parenthood Keystone is here with you — wherever you are. We are proud to use technology and innovation to reach people with the health care and information they need, when they need it. In these uncertain times, we're committed to connecting patients to care — no matter what,” said Melissa Reed, President & CEO.
Through telehealth, patients can access services with fewer visits or without needing to visit a health center at all. Planned Parenthood Keystone is committed to answering your questions, managing your prescriptions, and helping you address your sexual and reproductive health care needs, remotely. Emergency Contraception, Birth Control Supply, Urinary Tract Infection and Vaginitis treatments are currently available through the new program, and Planned Parenthood Keystone is excited to expand services in the future.
“We know that your sexual and reproductive health care can’t wait. As we weather this challenging time together, we don’t want you to worry about your birth control, learning your pregnancy options, or accessing STI tests and cancer screenings,” said Reed. “Planned Parenthood Keystone is doing everything we can to make your life easier and get you the information and care you need in timely and personalized ways. Whether we provide services in person, online, or by phone — we’re here with you.”
Planned Parenthood Keystone encourages everyone to follow the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local public health officials to reduce their risk of getting any respiratory virus or spreading one to others. This includes washing your hands often with soap and water, avoiding close contact with people who are sick, and practicing social distancing if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
The safety and health of patients, our staff, and our broader communities remains our highest priority as our country faces an unprecedented public health crisis. Self-isolation and social distancing are ways we can care for ourselves and each other. Our health is connected, and we can all do our part and take care of ourselves, our health, and our community.
